If you are in search of home update ideas, which will help to enhance the external look of your beautiful house, then consider building a natural swimming pool, in your backyard. Natural swimming pools in comparison to artificial swimming pools are more beautiful and attractive to look.

Moreover, in contrast to artificial pools, natural swimming pools require minimum maintenance and cleaning. They also helps to give your home a natural and countryside look. Building natural pools are much easier and economical than artificial pools. You can plant small plants and trees, all around the pool to create an idyllic surrounding. You can even set up a small fountain or spring at one end of the pool, to give it a more natural look.

You can also design a small sitting area, near the pool, where you can spend time with your family and friends, in the midst of nature.

5.Tissue dispensing Pillow

It’s good to see that crying is finally receiving some recognition in the design world, even though the fabulous German innovator Design 3000, lists the ThenCry pillow as a “First Aid” product! What better “treatment” for crying than the warmth of a cozy pillow that dispenses tissues. A crying pillow is so comforting, like a teddy bear, only more huggable. Everyone needs a special pillow for low times… especially if they don’t have to go searching for a box of tissues, which is so disruptive to a good cry!

You can be wise and creative by choosing  sinks. This creative idea leaves you with two benefits. This is where you have to be really creative. White and biscuit are the two predominant colors that people love. You would generally find both white colored and biscuit colored sinks from any leading manufacturer. Also there are number of products with attractive curves and designs. Especially the lengthy pedestal can provide much scope to attractive designs. This is where you must be choosy and creative.

Disegno Ceramica has introduced a line of sinks and bathroom  fixtures that show off a playful form while making no sacrifices when it comes to function. The most attractive is the Splash Collection comprising a shower base, wall hanging wash basin and a pedestal sink. Three colors plus white are available.

This sink features no visible pipes and a self draining surface. The linear design aspect contains both a visual and physical function. Designed by Will MacCormac, the curve of this sink is very slight so it can reduce splashing effectively, and the slots are used to guide water into the hole.

This particular gadget illustrates how important it is to conserve water. When you are using this sink to wash your hands, the fish loses its real estate if you take too much time. Yes, the water level in the fish bowl will actually go down if you are scrubbing your hands too long. In case you are wondering, there are safety features so the fish won’t have all of its precious water taken away. Just to let you know, you are not using the same water that a fish inhabiting. It’s just made to appear that way. The truth is the fish water drains underneath the sink, and then will return to normal.

The wall-mounted glass waterfall sink is an extraordinarily versatile and beautiful architectural element for the way we live today, enhancing the elegance and style of any bathroom.

There’s also a version that turns the mini-river you create into a waterfall. We’d like to see something in between, turning your wastewater into whitewater rapids. No pricing info was available, but this is cool enough to sacrifice a bit of money down the drain.

In this sink each piece was clearly individually sculpted. The surrounding decor suggests an elegant setting- so really, it may have been a bold move to include such sexy  bathroom sinks in whatever location this may be.

Dutch designer Tim Vinke has created a mobile office made up of a desk and two chairs that fit together like pieces of a puzzle to form a trolley. Called Kruikantoor, the piece is made from light-weight foam and equipped with wheels. It can be swiftly packed up, transported and set up somewhere else. The portable unit also includes a light, storage and electricity connection.
The ‘Kruikantoor; exists out of 2 chairs, a table, light, electricity connection and storage space.  The object is crafted from EPS Foam, covered with a coating existing of polyurea hotspray. Another interesting and creative idea.

I don’t know to what point it is stable and solid but this is surely original. This house was completely made from bottles with some glue mixture. A building construction style which usually uses 1l glass bottles  as masonry units and binds them using adobe, sand, cement, stucco, clay, plaster, mortar or any other joint compound  to result in an intriguing stained-glass like wall. An alternative is to make the bottle wall from 1/2l glass jugs filled with ink and set them up by supporting them between 2 windows.   Although bottle walls can be constructed in many different ways, they are typically made on a foundation  that is set into a trench in the earth to add stability to the wall. The trench is filled with a rubble of pea gravel and then filled in with cement.

Rebar  can be set into the foundation to add structural integrity. Bottle walls range from using one bottle as a filler in a thin wall to making walls two bottles thick. Most intriguing though, is the wall made from bottles cut in half, matched, and joined to another bottle of the same size and color. Primitive mixture, such as cob or adobe, are made from a mix of sand, clay, and straw. This is used as the mortar  to bind the bottles. It is thickly spread on the previous layer of bottles followed by the next layer which is pressed into the mixture. Typically two fingers of separation are used as a means of spacing although any kind of spacing can be achieved.

Bottles can also be duct taped together to create a window-type effect. Two similar size bottles can be taped together with the openings allowing a light passage way. This also traps air and creates a small amount of insulation. Filling glass with liquid that will be subjected to freezing and thawing is not a good idea, but is useful if the glass is protected from temperature extremes. When the bottles are filled with a  liquid, or other dark material, the wall can function as a thermal mass, absorbing solar radiation during the day and radiating it back into the space at night, thus dampening diurnal temperature swings. A typical mortar mix is 3:1 mason sand to a pozzalan  cement mix. Other mixtures could be made from mortar and clay, adobe, cob, sand or cement. Bottle walls are extremely versatile and could be bonded with pretty much anything that can endure its given climate.
It is believed that the first bottle house was constructed in 1902 by William F. Peck in Tonopah, Nevada. The house was built using 10,000 bottles of beer from Jhostetter’s Stomach Bitters which were 90% alcohol and 10% opium. The Peck house was demolished in the early 1980s.
